Pottery Wheel Throwing Course: Basics

Learn how to use the pottery wheel over four classes



4 x 2.5 hours Class size 1 to 10

label $405 (or 4 payments of $101.25 Afterpay)

In light of the government regulations as of 31st Jan, we will require proof of vaccination from all class participants over the age of 16.

If you love the idea of doing something new and exciting and don’t mind getting a little muddy, then this is the workshop for you!

Over four weeks, you’ll be guided by our experienced teacher, giving you all the skills and techniques needed to become a capable thrower. You’ll get to learn the basics on how to throw simple shapes such as cylinders (cups and mugs), bowls and vases. You’ll learn how to trim and shape your pots (extremely satisfying).

While throwing clay requires attention and practice, we know that at the end of this workshop you’ll be able to take home a piece of work that you’ll be proud of! The workshops are also small and intimate to maximise your experience. No experience is needed!

Please note:

  • This course does not include glazing.
  • Bisque firing of ceramic wares is included in the course fee.

Tickets and refunds:
Please select carefully when choosing your workshop date and time. We DO NOT refund or reschedule workshop bookings. If you are unable to attend a workshop, you are welcome to transfer your ticket to another person.

Replacement classes:
We encourage students to attend each lesson in the four-week course as we do not offer replacement classes. In the event that we have a spot available in the next course, a place may be made available for you to attend.

Firing:
If requested for, all pieces made will be bisque and ready for pickup a minimum of 4-6 weeks after the course date. All participants will be notified via text when items are ready for pickup.

Pottery breakage:
In the unfortunate case where your pottery breaks or cracks in the kiln, Not Yet Perfect do not offer refunds, as this is the nature of the firing process- pottery is a beautiful yet delicate process.

Not Yet Perfect is a ceramic business that strives not only to make beautiful pottery but also to beautiful creative experiences, soul-soothing spaces, magical moments and idea inducing workshops.

Ceramics are what set the table and create a place for people to come together, eat together, have deep conversation and create beautiful lasting memories.

At Not Yet Perfect we will continue to create perfectly imperfect connection, beautifully flawed ceramics, and extend this spirit of liberation to the beholders of our creations.

Such a great class - thoroughly enjoyed the 4 week course with Lucy. She was a great teacher and very calm. Showed us all the techniques of pottery. I am hooked on my new hobby. Everything was provided (including the clay) all we needed was our enthusiasm. I cannot wait until I can sign up to another class.
